With the exception of a new side-by-side fuselage, The full size PA-15 Vagabond utilized much of the same production tooling of the Piper Cub, allowing the aircraft to be built with minimal costs, and is credited with saving Piper Aircraft from bankruptcy after WWII. The Stevens Aero micro indoor version of this historic aircraft features docile handling, simple assembly, and has been engineered to readily accept popular ParkZone Ultra Micro DSM2 electronics.
The kit includes:
Credited as the father of the modern home built movement. Ed Heath's parasol was one of the only factory supplied kits in the early 30's that an aviation enthusiast could build at home and receive certification by the FAA. This micro indoor version of the Heath LNB-4 features has been engineered to readily accept popular ParkZone Ultra Micro DSM2 electronics.
Plans for the original parasol were published in the "Flying and Glider" manual and in Modern Mechanix magazine. Heath sold approximately 1000 kits with several hundred completed during the great depression.
The LNB-4 features a parasol wing and generous empennage making it a logical choice to model for RC flight. Builders of this laser cut model of the LNB-4 will be rewarded with a stable model featuring classic 1930's lines.
Aside from his modeling community fame, Pete Bowers may be best known for his contribution to the experimental aircraft homebuilt community with his Fly Baby line of aircraft. This is a model of the more obscure biplane variant of the Bowers Fly Baby. The micro indoor version of this famous homebuilt features delightfully nimble handling, excellent slow speed manners, biplane charm, simple assembly, and has been engineered to readily accept popular ParkZone Ultra Micro DSM2 electronics.
We recommend reading this RC Groups build log before building the Fly Baby.
The 'microMax 103' captures the simple lines, easy construction and delightful performance of the home built full-size MiniMax. Designed for the Parkzone Vapor or Spektrum AR6400 receiver modules.
The Team Mini Max was designed by Wayne Ison and marketed through TEAM aircraft. This highly successful mid-wing strut braced single seat rag wing design found favor among many home builders. TEAM eventually folded but the design lives on and has shuffled around from business to business (currently being sold through www.teammini-max.com).
microMax is modelled on an older Mini Max three-view as published in Bill Hannan's Peanuts & Pistachios resource and it should be noted that this three-view deviates somewhat from current full scale production. Stevens Aero chose to keep these deviations as they lend a unique look to the aircraft and, being a home built design, there's great variance in completed airframes as each builder offers their unique twist on finishing items such as cowl, wing tips, and empennage.
The spunky clipped wing Taylorcraft has been pleasing airshow audiences for decades. This Stevens AeroModel laser cut kit uses pioneering laser cutting techniques and interlocking construction methods and is quick building and simple to fly. Developed to accept popular micro electronics from ParkZone and E-Flite the clipped wing Taylorcraft is certain to delight!
The Stinson Aircraft Company was founded in 1920 by famed aviator Edward “Eddie” Stinson. In 1925, Stinson moved aircraft production from Dayton, Ohio to Detroit, Michigan, at the site where Detroit’s Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is located. Always an aviator at heart, Stinson flew as a stunt pilot, earning a staggering, at the time, $100,000 a year. Sadly, he did not live to see the success of his company. He was killed in a plane crash on January 26, 1932.
One of the most popular aircraft that the Stinson Aircraft Company produced was the Model 105. The Model 105 was Stinson’s first light aircraft. Introduced in 1939, the Stinson Company was hard pressed to meet the demand for this popular aircraft. Costing $2,995, the three-seat Model 105 was a strut-braced, high-wing monoplane, powered by either a 75 hp Continental A-75 engine, or the 80 hp Continental A-80-6. The aircraft also featured such innovations as a slotted wing to improve slow speed handling, and a luxurious cabin. Many notable aviation-minded people owned one, including Hollywood stars such as Edward Bergen, James Stewart, and billionaire playboy Howard Hughes.
At the outbreak of the Second World War some Stinson 105s were commandeered for use by the military. They proved so successful that the aircraft was redesigned to become the L-5 Sentinel, the last of which were retired from active service in the U.S. Air Force in 1955.
No other form of aviation can equal the experience of flying open cockpit in helmet and goggles. The year was 1928 and the Baby Ace is introduced to the aspiring pilot of average means, by Orland G. Corben. The introduction of the Baby Ace comes well in advance of the likes of Cessna and Piper. This inexpensive, quick building, and easy to fly aeoplane is a helmet and goggle flyer's delight.
Stevens Aero version of the Baby Ace, was developed as an approachable build project and is easily completed in several evenings by those entry level builders looking to give their first scale subject a try. The Baby Ace UM accepts popular micro electronics from ParkZone and E-Flite, and while other micro electronics packages can be retrofit Stevens suggest outfitting the model as designed. The Baby Ace UM is controlled via three channels (Rudder/Elevator/Throttle) and is positively stable in both pitch and roll making it a suitable model for those in search of a relaxing model to pilot around the weed patch. Each Baby Ace UM micro indoor electric RC kit is manufactured from hand sorted balsa and backed with a comprehensive hardware package, step-by-step photo illustrated instruction manual, and the best design know how in the kit manufacturing business. Stevens AeroModel is committed to your success in aeromodeling and believes the Baby Ace UM to be an ideal entry into the world of scale micro indoor radio control. So grab your little ace, grand child, or neighbor and together build this delightful classic today. Build It!
The Fokker D.VII’s docile flight manners and agile performance are sure to bring excitement to morning “dawn patrols”, or as a worthy opponent to the micro SE5a, as you relive the aerial dogfights of the Great War in your local gym, or your favourite flying site.
The Fokker D.VII was designed by Fokker’s prolific designer Reinhold Platz. Germany produced around 3,300 examples of the D.VII in the summer and autumn of 1918. The D.VII quickly proved to be a very formidable aircraft. In fact the armistice ending the war in 1918 specifically required that Germany surrender all it’s D.VII aircraft to the Allies at the conclusion of hostilities.
The D.VII entered service in early May 1918. Allied fighter pilots underestimated the new German fighter because of its squarish and ungainly appearance, but quickly revised their view as the D.VII began to mount up victories.
Flown by German aces such as Erich Lowenhart, Ernest Udet, and Herman Goring, among others, the Fokker D.VII earned a reputation as a top fighter aircraft. It was said that the aeroplane could make a poor pilot good, and a good pilot an ace.
After the war the D.VII saw service with a number of countries including Belgium, Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands, Finland, the Soviet Union, and the United States as well as many others. The Fokker D.VII was operational with the Swiss Air Force into the early 1930’s.
